Terrific Tuesday 5/8/12

Oh my, I had one of the most productive days yesterday that I have had in a LONG time.  I was able to do the finish work on several pieces and I actually got time to take PHOTOS too!  Again, PRODUCTIVE DAY!!  I am so very proud of some of these creations. 
One of the new techniques I have learned is how to do these ‘little’ Chaton’s.  I am having so much fun with them.  They are basically the same as some of the LARGE centerpieces that I do, but on a MINI scale.  The first couple of rows are done with 11o Delica’s – meaning there are 11 beads per inch and the remaining rows are done with 14o Beads – meaning there are 14 beads per inch.  Each earrings has been taking me about 1 1/2 hours – so about  hours each……. once I get the design done.  Several of them I have to ‘re-do’ several times – there is a BIT of a learning curve (pardon the pun) to these little earrings!
So, tell me – honestly – what you think!  I really want to know.  Here is the first one’s I am listing ( I have several pairs ready to go).
Pink and Silver Plated Beadwoven Swarovski Crystal Earrings
Then there is this creation…. do you remember way back about a month ago I told you about the wonderful beads I received from Georgia Mountain Arts…..
What I may not have told you is that the Fused Glass Pendant over on the right was handmade by Ms. Peggy.  I fell in love with it the moment I saw it.  The only down side, what to create around it.  I felt like I just had to add a ‘striking’ color to the mix.  So, I added copper seed beads…. here is what it turned out like….
So, once again I would like to thank Ms. Peggy from Georgia Mountain Arts for her great swap mix! 
So, with all that being said I will close for now and go back to my beading….I have even more to show you tomorrow!
All degrees of joy reside in the heart.
